Side projects are one-liners on my resume. Should I use a given director title on one if I wasn't really a director? Got the title because we were incorporating and CEO wanted to formalize for the future. But only 3 part time reports, and even then we were all volunteers and very low effort.

Thinking of keeping it for the talking point, but using quotes to show that I know it was silly. The single resume line would read...

- Marketing "director" at XYZ. Did ABC with DEF.

Thoughts?

The title is legit, the organization may not be. Just say Marketing Director (Startup) or something like that.

If you give an “ish” number for salary expectations on a call with a recruiter, is that the number they offer? If you say 115ish, would they ever offer 125? 120? Or will they just come back with 115. Or even lower haha. Just curious if anyone has been offered slightly more.

I know business (ops/marketing/sales/fundraising/etc), and pretend to know tech... I'm looking for someone who can actually execute on that side.

I can offer equity and nominal pay if necessary. Ping me if interested!
